The Lord is My Shepherd motto

This motto captures another familiar saying from the late 1880's, and Claudia has adapted it to fit on today's available perforated paper. "The Lord Is My Shepherd", based on the 23rd Psalm, was and is a familiar motto of comfort.

All of our mottoes are charted for stitching on perforated paper with traditional textured stitches, just as the Victorians stitched them, and for completing the design using Cross stitch only which can be worked on fabric and also paper.

We sell the threads for all of our motto designs even if they are not listed on this website. If you cannot find the threads locally please contact Dutch Treat directly.
